Oh. Holy. Crap.
I can't quit Jennifer Echols . Not that I really try that hard, but I read her new ones and often feel as though I'm still searching for that one in possession of that certain something that will make me feel the way Going Too Far did. Like I couldn't put it it down. And definitely like I didn't hate either of the main characters after the fact. Well, I found it with Such a Rush . I read this 300+ pager in a single night, which clears up the question of whether or not I couldn't put it down. And I finished it definitely not hating either of the main characters. I didn't finish it loving them both unreservedly, though. I loved Leah with my whole heart from page one and that never changed. My feelings regarding one of the Hall brothers remain complicated. More to come on this in a bit. On a side note, I'm delighted that Such a Rush is Ms. Echols' hardcover debut. It's a meticulously designed book, a pleasure to hold in my hands as I stayed up way
I know! It looks so good. :) I've loved sharing it with my students all day today. Nothing better than proving to them, once again, that almost every fabulous movie actually came from a great book!ReplyDelete
I KNOW. Jennifer Lawrence is perfect!! When she screams out "I volunteer!" I just get the chills!ReplyDelete
I almost cried when I first watched this trailer! Loved it :)ReplyDelete
I really, really, really, (and many times over) hope it doesn't suck.ReplyDelete
Not a fan of whoever it is they picked for Gale and Peeta.
Oh my gosh!!! So good! That is so weird that it looks exactly how I pictured it in my head.ReplyDelete
haha, i'm with the 'almost' criers. Watched it at least 5 times already, here to say I still have to fight back the waterworks toward the end of the trailerReplyDelete
I'm with the full on criers. This looks like it's going to be spectacular.ReplyDelete
I don't understand all the people who are whining about the casting. People always whine about the casting until they see the movie and then they get over it. Personally, I think the casting is perfect. No, it's not who I saw "in my head." But how can it be?
I've watched this 3x in the past 24 hours. I'd watch it more but the phones keep ringing at work. :D I'm very excited for this movie!ReplyDelete
Seriously, I am just SO happy with it. Gale, especially, is very similar to how I pictured him.ReplyDelete
This movie looks awesome. I am excited to see it.ReplyDelete
It even inspired me to create a list of upcoming YA Fantasy book based movies on my blog!
The Hunger Games made my list!
Very excited! I'm dressing up this time as the real hero, which everyone knows of course...ReplyDelete
Becky, oh, I hadn't thought of that! Good for you. I bet that's been a blast.ReplyDelete
Sandy, I really think she is as well. Can't wait to see her in action.
Mari, gives you chills, doesn't it?
Laura, me, too. Me, too.
Camie, does it? That's awesome, I love that! I really think it looks spectacular.
librarian, lol. I hear ya. It's going to be very emotional.
Diana, exactly. I just put aside what my mental images from the book and give the film its own chance to wow me. And frankly I'm already wowed. So exciting!
Alicia, hehe. No shame. I'm about to watch it again right now. :)
Janssen, I love hearing that. And I'm glad. Can't wait to see the full length film.
R.J., it really does. I'll have to check out your list for sure. Sounds great.
Matt, LOL. Haymitch, right? ;)
I thought I was just hormonal and pregnant, cause I shed full on tears too, but I guess that's the norm! I was not expecting that flood of emotion!ReplyDelete
Aww dammit it looks really good!ReplyDelete
Liza, I completely understand. That brief shot of Rue killed me.ReplyDelete
I was seriously on the fence with going to the theater to see this (I loathe the theater) but man, now I don't know how I can avoid it. Still bummed on the Lenny Kravitz casting but I'll have to learn to deal.ReplyDelete
